Abbots Ripton is a small village between Huntingdon and Peterborough. It had a station but this like most of the small stations on the ECML this was later closed.
 
Abbotts Ripton is better known for the wrong reasons because of the rail disaster here when a signal froze in the clear position on the 28th January 1876 which let an express passenger run into the rear of a coal train.
 
Today there  are only three tracks here, the  Up fast Down fast and Down slow.
 
There are now plans in place to put back Up slow

This website is ukraiways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is web site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was still  British Rail when I started taken photos.
 
Today LNER East Midland trains and GBRf are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
